Consider a gift to Los Angeles Baroque, now in its eighth season! Make our 2024 goals a reality. LAB is a weekly learning environment where musicians of all levels can come together for expert in-person small group coaching, "big band" training sessions and more. It is Los Angeles’s only community program for orchestral Baroque study.
Los Angeles Baroque needs your support to thrive more than ever before.
Give a straight eight! $80, $180, $280, $800 or any amount to continue LAB in 2024.
We truly value our Angels—those who contribute $350 or more. These lead donors are listed in our programs and offered priority seating at our concerts. However, donations in any amount are gratefully accepted. Gifts may be made monthly, yearly, online or by check. Many employers match charitable contributions from their employees. You may wish to talk with your HR representative to see if you can take advantage of a matching benefit.
When you contribute, you are giving vital support to:
-LAB's Orchestra Program, offered to college students studying Baroque performance practices, professional musicians who play modern instruments and want to learn how to play early music, and devoted amateurs to whom this music speaks so deeply;
-LAB's Scholarship Program, which each year allows six young people to enter the world of early music;
-LAB's Chamber Music Program, which introduces players to the vast repertoire of chamber music written between 1600 and 1750;
-LAB's Consort Clubs, started in the summer of 2021, offering viol players the chance to explore the rich world of consort music in a coached environment;
-LAB's Library Program. Through a rigorous audition process, the Los Angeles Public Library tapped us for its L.A. Made program, and in the coming season we will again play in libraries throughout Los Angeles County;
-LAB's Music Ministry Program. We offer our artistic services to St. James’ music outreach program and holiday services.
NEW for 2023-24! LAB is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of Los Angeles Baroque must be made payable to “Fractured Atlas” only and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. Fractured Atlas will issue tax receipts for all donations made to Los Angeles Baroque. Monthly recurring and annual giving options are available. Online with credit card and checks are gratefully accepted.
Aside from members' dues we currently rely almost entirely on LAB's annual fund drives to fund our activities. Help us continue to bring meaningful, enriching early music experiences to greater LA's musicians and communities, and beyond!
Thank you for your ongoing support.
